Birds In The Garden Earrings

I spent Monday with my good friend and Earrings Everyday head honcho, Kristi Bowman-Gruel.  She lives about 2 hours north of me.  I brought up my clay and we had a play date together.  As you can tell, it was a very serious endeavor.
Kristi, hard at work.
Of course whenever I am with Kristi, I have to pick up a bunch of her components!
Mine, all mine!  Squeee!

As soon as I returned home, I was inspired to make these.
 They feature Kristi's copper flower components, handmade ear wires and some cute little birdie beads.  I call them "Birds in the Garden" earrings.
Spending time in your garden is good for your heart and soul.  Perhaps wearing these earrings would have a similar effect.
